I've drawn a square on my background.
The square is then edited to be more transparent, embossed etc.
When I then make a new layer, and try to draw a new shape through that square, the transparency, embossing etc etc is added to my new shape.
Screenshot attached. I want the arrow to be clear and unaffected by the squares settings.
There are several ways, here are but two:
Use a selection of an arrow as a layer mask and in the Blending Options set Layer Mask Hides Effects
Put a arrow shape layer on top and in the Blending Options set the Fill Opacity to 0 (zero) and Knockout to Shallow
